Avoid the sweep!

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Here we are, day 3 of the 2016 season, and the Padres are in a position where they're just trying to avoid a sweep by one of their biggest rivals. It hasn't been exactly "fun" watching this team these past couple of nights. Let's hope for something different as one of the most fun (IMO) guys in the clubhouse takes the mound for his 2016 regular season debut.

Also making their 2016 debut tonight will be the new navy "blueberry" digital camo jerseys announced by the Padres last December. They look pretty slick and it's great for the Padres to embrace the Navy town that is San Diego.
